My roommate and I are really sick and we look like shit, but we were hungry so we ordered pizza.
But we didn’t want anyone to see us, so we asked them over the phone if we can leave the money on the door and they can just drop off the pizza.
The guy said sure.
So we decided to leave a nice little note
and we hung it above the door bell. I hope they like it!
pizza spelt its own name wrong
living in a small town is wonderful
- are there a lot of modes of transportation? nope! you either drive or you’re out of luck basically
- are there a lot of job opportunities? no! of course not
- are there things to do? hang out at the grocery store or go to the only movie theater the town has!
- are the people nice? of course not! not at all!
- are you close to anything interesting? nope! everything interesting happens hours away and you’re stuck in the middle of nowhere
steve “led a one man mission behind heavily guarded enemy lines in another fucking country just to save someone who might be alive if the stars are aligned correctly, fights guys who talk to loud in a movie” rogers is not steve “we have to follow orders, theres only one god ma’am” rogers
So I just hallucinated the part where he broke into a restricted lab to collect evidence proving Fury actually was keeping secrets, then?
Also the way you’re using Steve’s religion to make a point is really gross.
A thousand people already commented on this, but I just wanted to add that Steve’s line in the Avengers about “there’s only one God, ma’am, and I’m pretty sure he doesn’t dress like that” was brilliant because 1) it’s funny, 2) it’s in character, especially for someone who’s literally two weeks out of 1945, and 3) it’s reaffirming to people with religious beliefs (not just Christians) that a major movie character asks for his religion to be taken seriously.
See, as a Scandinavian out of Norse tradition, I always had a tiny, microscopic issue with the description of Marvel Asgardians as “gods”—they’re not, they’re just very advanced aliens (Clarke’s third law: Any sufficiently advanced technology is indistinguishable from magic—or divine intervention). Saying Marvel’s versions of Thor and Loki are gods is basically saying there are no god(s), which is obviously hurtful to religious people.
So I don’t see how Steve’s “hey, you wanna show some respect?” in CA:FA is any different from “there’s only one God, ma’am, and I’m pretty sure he doesn’t dress like that” in The Avengers—in both situations, he’s reacting to what he perceives as a lack of respect towards some deeply-held personal values.
Also, I don’t get the “we have to follow orders,” because Steve commandeered a Quinjet and when the pilot protested that “you guys aren’t authorised to be in here,” Steve told him, “son, just don’t.” Which is actually the opposite of following orders. So.
#oh my god the issue with ”there’s only one god” isn’t that WOW HOW DARE HE HAVE A RELIGION#it’s that it’s a fucking /dick thing to say/#how many times do people have to reiterate that the whole ”it’s IC because that’s how it was in the 40’s” argument doesn’t fly with this character#you know what the 40’s also had? even more rampant misogyny and segregation#but it’s not as if those are things steve has#so he’s just gonna assume everyone around him shares his monotheist religion?#and state his personal beliefs as fact?#yeah catfa showed no indication that he was religious but ofc he STILL MIGHT BE#they didn’t show him eating but he obviously still eats#but TA made him the type to be pretty presumptuous and rude about his religion#which would be a character flaw if the writer was actually trying to present it as such#but he wasn’t—it was meant to be a joke#it was supposed to show off steve’s snarkiness#but like so many one-liners in that movie it fell dead flat#bc let’s face it religion is an uncomfortable subject for a lot of people#and this Boy Scout Old Fashioned White Dude Hero saying stating ”there’s only one god” as if it were fact is gonna rankle people#steve felt like the sterotype his character was supposed to be subverting with that line#in the tags because this horse has been beaten to death i just can’t help myself (kehinki)
